Another alderman that was let down

another good alderman, gives it his all every day

Heartbroken South Side alderman doesn’t understand looting – or police response: ‘I think we should have had a better plan’

It took Ald. Howard Brookins Jr. the better part of two terms to convince Walmart to locate a store in
his 21st Ward, but it took looters only a couple of hours to destroy it.

On Monday, an extremely frustrated Brookins lamented the extensive damage to businesses in his South Side ward and questioned why police had not done more to prevent it.

Brookins estimated 95% of stores that sell merchandise in the ward were hit by looters over the weekend.

Jewel, Home Depot, Marshalls, Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, Walgreen’s and TCF Bank were among those suffering extensive losses, to name just a few.

The looting was a heartbreaking setback to Brookins and other African-American aldermen, who know better than anyone how difficult it has been to attract whatever investment they’ve seen over the past two decades in their South and West side neighborhoods and how long it might take to replace it — if ever.

    No Chicago Police, Cook County Sheriff, State Police or FEDS.

    It was all planned this is how they will get their bailout due to the riots and businesses will get an insurance payout what a racket!

    Really Alderman...You're blaming the police. You are a disgrace. Every one of those businesses should pack up and move out of the city. Try preaching some self respect and respect for others.

      Youre not that bright. He is not blaming the police. He is blaming the mayor for sending all the police downtown.

    2. All of the police entities mentioned cover large to huge geographic areas. There's no way Illinois, Cook County and Chicago will ever have enough cops, even if none were sick. :-|

      Alderperson Brookins was lucky to have the stores remain until now. Retail is dying from online shopping and thefts. Stores can only write off thefts, for so long. If the stores raise prices, they're accused of discrimination. :-[

    New footage is surfacing...

    In a new video, you can clearly see drug baggies falling out of Floyd's pants before they ever take him near the cop car. The cop even picks one up at one point.

    When they take Floyd to the car, he starts resisting on the sidewalk, then another video shows him kicking at the cops when the try to put him inside the car. That's when they dragged him out and put him on the ground.

    Now we already know that Floyd was a lifelong coke addict/dealer, it pops up time and again in his long criminal history.

    There's also evidence suggesting that he suffered from drug induced heart tremors in the past, a common side effect of heavy coke use.

    So to piece the ACTUAL story together, this is what happened:

    >Cops get call for phony bill (counterfeit), also probably alerted of Floyd's intoxicated state.

    >Show up, see the guy is a unit with a long criminal record.

    >Go relatively gentle on him at first
    >He starts tweaking, so they try to put him in the car for his own protection.

    >Floyd starts kicking the cops and they get pissed.

    >Drag him out onto the ground.

    >Floyd still tweaking and passes out from a coke induced heart attack.

    >Dies later at hospital.

    Also it's been proven by countless experts that the knee-neck position the cop used is NOT LETHAL. Maybe not standard procedure, but definitely not lethal. Israeli and Swedish police/military DO use it as STANDARD PROCEDURE.

    So far all the video and written evidence supports this version of events, but the ch!mps are already out of their cage. They won't listen to reason even if you put the evidence right in front of them.

    That's where you come in.

    We NEED to spread the REAL STORY as far and wide as possible. Maybe, just maybe, this will redpill enough people and expose what a hoax this all is.

      The police officers can never be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
